About the Author

Greg Bottrill is an experienced Early Years practitioner who leads a large Foundation Unit in Devon and also supports other schools within the county in developing their EY practice. Committed to changing perceptions of Early Years, he is dedicated to bringing about a new pedagogy that puts the child at the centre of the education Universe.


This is a highly readable book with a very personal slant which makes it appealing and engaging. The author explores how he ensures that, in his Early Years setting, continuous provision enables children. He shares his Early Years pedagogy through the '3Ms' and explains how to apply these in the classroom. Greg also explores the definition of play - what it is and what it isn't - and the challenging role of the Early Years teacher. Topics include early reading and the joy of reading; early writing development; boys' writing; the nature of outdoor play and how to make this truly `outdoor'; the role of parents in child development; mathematics in play; when and how to do intervention work with children; how to get Headteachers and centre managers on board. These show just how wide-ranging and practical the book is - and always the child is at the heart of everything. Reassuring and empowering - a book to make you think and build confidence. -- Sarah Brew
